Consortium description

Partner tasks

IMEC coordinates the project and will design ultra-compact SOI waveguide circuits for routing and demultiplexing. IMEC will also contribute to the fabrication of the sources and their integration with the waveguides. ST Microelectronics is investigating the viability of optical networks-on-chip and will design the required CMOS-circuits. CEA will develop the integration process and fabricate the photonic layer in a standard CMOS pilot line, including the III-V based microsources. INL is involved in the design and fabrication of the microsource arrays, will contribute to the optoNoC system studies and will be responsible for the design of the optical routers. UNITN will design innovative optical WDM circuits based on coupled ring resonators. MAPPER will be responsible for the system studies related to the terabit optical link.
